2014 Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir
2014 Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD: Toboni Vineyard is located in the Santa Rosa Plains, where the vineyard is bathed in morning fog that rises off the river and cools the vines, while sunny, warm days heighten the intensity and complexity of the fruit flavor. Planted in 2001 to clones 115, 667, 777 and Pommard, the vineyard exhibits a winegrowing triple threat of cool fog, sunny afternoons and excellent farming practices.
 
TASTING NOTES: Dense and concentrated fruit aromas of Santa Rosa plum and black cherry quickly emerge from the glass while a lively potpourri of bay leaves, lavender, and cut hay linger in the background. Broad and full bodied in the mouth, this wine provides an abundance of complex flavors and textural focus. Fully integrated oak tannins support the ample fruit profile, while refreshing natural acidity leads the way to a resounding finish.

SITE DESCRIPTION
Planted in 2001. The vineyard has a morning fog that rises off the river and cools the vines, while sunny, warm days and breezy afternoons tend to heighten the intensity and complexity of the fruit flavor. OwnersMary and Joe Toboni are 4th generation San Franciscans whose roots can be traced back to San Francisco as early as the 1870s and specifically to Sonoma County prior to the 1920s. Every step of the way the Tobonis have made the ultimate effort by matching their soils and climate with optimal rootstock and clonal selections. Presently the Tobonis use a cover crop mix of perennial grasses which inhibits erosion and therefore holds all the nutrients and the minerals in the soils. The soils are loamy clay with some mineral and gravel composites.
 
FRUIT CHARACTER

"Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. This wine packs more concentration than the color would indicate. I loved the aromatics, showing elevating scents of fresh Bing cherry, cola and potpourri. Richly endowed with flavors of dark cherry and black raspberry with a hint of baking spices, in a very friendly mid weight plus style that is beautifully composed and finishes with a memorable infusion of cleansing acidity and fruit. Way too easy to drink."June 2016
